"Next charter destination?" Durres by Henrik_rrb
Durres Travel Guide: 65 reviews and 189 photos
Football is sometimes taking me to places I never would have thought I would get to see. Thankfully Sweden every now and then is drawn against a country where I haven't been before, and then it's always a pleasure going there.
In the autumn 2009 me and a friend headed to Albania for a week, and decided to get some sunshine in Durres on the albanian west coast for a couple of days.
Quite sleepy city, but a beautiful beach, amazing sunset and very good prices on the five star hotel!
The week before we arrived we read an article about how bad the water at the coast was for your health. Very sad, as that meant we hardly dared to swim at all in the warm water.
But the beach was very nice anyway, and the beer was cheap. :)
There aren't exactly one billion sights to look at in Durres, but the old Roman theater is very nice!
- Pros:The weather and the low prices
- Cons:Boring during low season
We had a good time in both Durres and Tirana, and most of the time we had really good food. But one should consider that... more travel advice
I have to admit that it maybe wasn't the brightest thing to go to Albania during off season, but what should I have done... more travel advice
